Axient Supports Successful USMC 40 FTLS XQ-58 Flight Test

The United States Marine Corps successfully executed the 40 FTLS XQ-58 Flight Test on Tuesday, Oct 3. Several Axient employees have performed exceptionally for the 40FLTS, 96TW, and Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division AIRWorks (NAWCAD/AWX), supporting this effort over the past 12 months and were involved in the Penetrating Affordable Autonomous Collaborative Killer Portfolio (PAACK-P) flight test.
